For the fifth year in a row, a First Presbyterian Church of Littleton (FPCL) member / Elder ran for the Zimbabwe Kidz mission effort as part of the Denver Colfax race weekend. The race was Sunday May 19th and we’re happy to report that the event was a great success. Several FPCL members and regular attendees pledged to the run in 2019, and were happy to report that over $2,600 were raised. 100% of the pledges go straight to the Zimbabwe Kidz mission. Here is a recap from the mission organizers on the impact of these contributions:
Zimbabwe KidZ Mission Partnership has financed the drilling of sixteen boreholes at Presbyterian schools or churches in Zimbabwe, Africa. Clean water is now available to approximately 8,000 people!!! The overall health impact is enormous.But t hat is just the beginning. Because of the clean water, a medical clinic has opened serving a community of 1,000 people. Every location now has a garden that provides a better diet; several churches have a chicken project that also improves the diet of the congregation and the preschool of the church as well as providing an income for the church. (The unemployment rate in Zimbabwe is 95%.)
Cost of a borehole is $9,500 to $12,500 US dollars. Price depends on distance traveled to the location and depth of drilling.
Thanks to everyone who has supported this World Mission!
